The KIN'OPTIC PATTERNS WITH AMAZING OPTICAL EFFECTS OF MOVEMENT BY GIANNI SARCONE

Today i present these extraordinary patterns, designed by Gianni A. Sarcone, considered a leading authority on visual perception: with more than twenty years of experience, Gianni has written numerous books about optical illusions and logical and mathematic thinking.
Scientists have several theories on how our eyes and brain work together to create the illusion of movement, although the precise neural mechanisms remain unknown. Yet, what we know makes it possible for artists like Gianni designing visual jokes.
When we fix one particular of these patterns, is momentarily a residual image on our retinas. One theory holds that small involuntary eye movements bring this ghost to overlap with the image of the entire graphic. The result, called "moiré", gives the incredible impression that the patterns is moving.
Have fun!
